I said the exact same thing when they proposed marner for Jones. On NO planet would that deal happen or this one
Seth Jones has tanked his value way more this year then Eichel has. Jones has been pretty close to a tire fire.
Definitely not the right trade for either team...should have been done when PLD wanted out...
Expect a reply about how Eichel sucks, due to the “Buff” in your name.
Dustin was just a myth.
No. /Close thread.
Not even close. Not only is it not remotely close, it's just non-sensible. Firstly, we have 4 right handed defensemen under contract. Secondly, Ullmark has similar numbers and we'll have cap space to re-sign him. Thirdly, Texier and a 1st are nice starters, but Jones makes no sense as a starting point.
Eichel has 2 goals this year and he’s never made the playoffs in his life
He’s also been out with an injury for 7 weeks. Surely you’re not that deluded to think that he wouldn’t have scored at all in those 7 weeks
Even when he was in the line up he was t playing well. I guess you and I have different standards. You may be happy about his 2 goals in 21 games but I don’t think that’s enough for a 10 million dollar player.
Yea that guy with a shoulder injury, who had no power or quickness to his shot, should have scored more.
I know his total is disappointing. He was not shooting at all. On the PP he’d always look to pass instead of shooting. Probably because of said injury.
But you’re basically saying “no he would not have scored a single goal in the past 7 weeks if he played”.
No way if im a buffalo fan
That’s not what I’m saying. What I’m saying is you can’t expect him to have the same trade value he did before this season. His value has gone down a bit and if your gonna trade him you have to accept that.
It’s not gone down to “Garnet Hathaway” levels though, like you seem to imply. GMs don’t operate on “the last 20 games are now what you are”
His trade value has gone down
Nice try, sorry but that's just an ignorant statement .
He had neck and shoulders injuries all season and he still tried to play for his team. That decreases absolutely no value for being a leader.
But would you do Petterson for Jones?
I trust a Stanley cup and olympic bronze medal winning defenders eye test more then any stats or any of our amateur opinions.
That's really bad for the Sabres
No because we all ready have hughes.
Also, I'm not as big on Jones as most seem to be. There are a good handful of D in the league I'd take over Jones.
That's a joke a bad one but a joke nonetheless
I have daydreamed a lot recently about how to get Eichel to Columbus and never did I consider involving Jones because I know it doesn’t work for Buffalo.
I don't think Jones works (especially without an extension) as a return for Eichel. Personally, I think the Sabres need a 1C much more.
It'd certainly be something to see Eichel get traded to Columbus and get benched a few games later though.
